1 Best Place to Shop in Lombardy and the Lakes, Italy


Sperlari and parent company Fieschi have grown into a confectionery empire, but it all started at this handsome shop, which has been selling Cremona's famous nougat and its best mostarda (a preserved-fruit condiment served alongside meat and cheese) since 1836. While shopping for these items—as well as teas, marmalades, and other Italian delights—be sure to check out the historical product display at the back of the store.
